Are those images of the dyno runs copyrighted at all?

And he used those images for his own personal use..? That is we are assuming they were from the website.

For the record, and so we can leave them up, all those dyno sheets Turtle Emailed me are the sole property of the site they ORIGNALLY came from, as stated here and CGP.

I'll be contacting all three shops to clear the air.

Here is where I have the difficulty.

Turtle claims not to be very computer oriented, so much so that he emailed dyno pics to willwren under the impression that they were his images. How does an non-computer guy scour the web for obscure dyno charts.

I would assume that a web savvy individual could find it in mere seconds, but you have to know what you are looking for.

GRANTED, Turtle must have understood that his credibility was on the line. I mean if someone makes monumental record claims, and passes it off as such, 3800 fanatics will do everything in their power to verify these claims

BonnevilleClub, its staff and its members wanted to believe that this was possible, due to the nature of the relationship between admins and this member (who is now in question).

Edit: Bill you beat me to the post, good idea on contacting these shops....i never would have considered that

You guys weren't the only ones. I wanted to believe this too. I always enjoy seeing people pushing the envelope and learning what they did to get there. You end up getting all involved in the tech behind something like this only to find out that you can't trust the modding information you've been getting. It'* a disappointment.

Considering all that I've heard about what was done to this car, I'd really like to at least see a pic of some of the work. I'd like to know what the car will really do now that the charts are suspect.

When I asked about who had the next fastest Bonnie it never dawned on me that it would be the one over at INTENSE. I keep forgetting about that car. I think Jeff drives that at the events a lot.

Even if Turtle SSE'* claim are accurate (remains to be seen..13'* were posted) Big Jeff is still faster, he gets 11'* in his SSEi...(correct me if I am wrong) so Big Jeff never lost the crown.
